Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Like a sea of negativity...

I'm going to make the trip up to see it, I think.

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

There's a hint of David Brent about The Forgotten Child, as lovely and affecting as it is. Err ... please elaborate This part: "The times are brutal, borders are crossed Where is the child? The child is lost" I don't know why it reminds me of Brent, but it does. I love it, by the way. It's in no wa...

He's waiting me to tell him whether he likes it or not before he posts.
Well, I'm not doing it; he's on his own, this time.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I ordered both the special edition and standard hardback (one to read, one to treasure), I'm yet to receive shipping notices for either.
I tracked my package from the link in the original order confirmation email from Waterstones...took me to a page stating my order was "processing". Ridiculous.

Re: Appreciation Thread for HCYETBTS Album Version

I'm not sure it really matters what other people think to the track; if you love it, that's enough and no one else's opinion should change that. I think it would have made a fantastic B-side, which is sort of what it became. I'd still much rather have Miserablism on Behaviour, though I do like the e...

Reissues project

Finally giving the latest vinyl remasters a spin. Just heard Bilingual and I can say, unequivocally, that, in parts, it's something of a revelation. An aurally narrow-sounding album has been, somehow, opened up and given a new lease of life. Up Against It, The Survivors and To Step Aside were the st...

Re: Reissues project

Up Against It written on auto pilot? The reviewer must be either deaf or dead.

I have the vinyl reissues in hand, yet to play.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I also ordered the limited edition. Laugh, mock, be appalled...I don't care.
A beautifully presented, nicely bound book containing lyrics from my favourite lyricist of over 30 years and signed by the author? I'd have been mad not to. What a lovely thing to own.
